By the Numbers: Seahawks vs Texans

Ten numbers that stood out from the Seahawks' 41-38 win over the Texans.

The Seattle Seahawks moved to 5-2 on the season after defeating the Houston Texans 41-38 on Sunday. Here are 10 numbers that stood out from the Week 8 contest: 

For the first time this season, the Seahawks defense allowed a touchdown in the first quarter and the fourth quarter. A rare slip-up for a unit that stays near the top of the league in scoring. 

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman picked off Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson twice, moving him into a tie with Seahawks Legend Kenny Easley on the team's all-time interceptions list with 32. 

With four receptions against the Texans, Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham moved past John Carlson for third-place on the Seahawks' all-time receptions by a tight end list. 


Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright had a team-high 14 tackles, giving him 40 against AFC opponents at home in his last four games. 


In his first game with the Seahawks, defensive end Dwight Freeney played 18 of 71 possible snaps for the defense. Freeney made an impact in those limited snaps, recording a half sack, a tackle and one quarterback hit.  


Earl Thomas' 78-yard pick-6 against the Texans was the second of his illustrious career. The other came in 2012 when the Seahawks visited the Buffalo Bills. 


Seahawks wide receiver Paul Richardson statistically had the best game of his career. Richardson caught six passes for 105 yards and two touchdowns (all career-highs). It was the first  multi-touchdown and 100-yard game of Richardson's career.


Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll tied George Allen and Norv Turner for 33rd place on the NFL's all-time coaches wins list with 118. 


In addition to Richardson, Tyler Lockett also had a big day against the Texans, catching six passes for 121 yards — the second-highest yards he's put up in a game. 


Russell Wilson passed for a career-high and Seahawks franchise record 452 yards in Week 8. That whopping total also helped him pass Jim Zorn for third-place on Seattle's all-time passing yards list.
